Dude - get studs and leave them on in the winter. ebikes and studds are a great combination. Studded tires are slow and heavy, but on an ebike - it just doesn't care. I can easily ride 20mph and corner with peace of mind. No reason not to have at least 160 studs, but you'll slide a little (more like drifting) on an ebike at that level. 250 studs and you'll stick to anything reasonable. I have a set of tires with 300 studs, and I can literally do wheelies on a frozen lake.

Don't be silly - use studs on an ebike in the winter.
